Restoring native shortleaf pine can improve forest resilience and reduce severe wildfire risk. Shortleaf pine has declined by 50 percent over the past few decades in the South, and thanks to our generous supporters, we are returning shortleaf pine to Ozark National Forest and beyond.
In the Great Lakes region, extreme weather events can lead to significant deforestation. Over the past few years, we have worked to reforest parts of Wisconsin's Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest impacted by strong winds, improving habitat for wildlife and visitors.
Through a unique collaboration between our Forest Service partners and a local university, hundreds of schoolchildren volunteer to replant on Coconino National Forest for wildfire recovery.
Each year, the NFF plants thousands of longleaf pine seedlings across the Southeast. It’s part of our effort to return this once widespread pine to its historic range and enhance habitat for the many wildlife species who call its forests home
We partnered with surface mine reforestation nonprofit Green Forests Work to plant 50,000 native seedlings to help restore a red spruce ecosystem in Central Appalachia.
Thanks to the generous support of individual members of the Rockefeller family, we reforested 100 acres of Shoshone National Forest, still without forest cover thirty years after the Clover Mist Fire. The family had long ties to this region as John D. Rockefeller, Jr. had acquired and donated to the federal government 33,000 acres for a major expansion of public lands around Jackson Hole, WY. The Shoshone and Teton National Forests lie directly to the east of where an earlier Rockefeller had done his part for conservation.
Thanks to the generosity of tree-planting partners like Lands’ End, we’ve planted thousands of jack pine trees on Hiawatha National Forest and supported Kirtland’s warblers’ recovery efforts.
Working with our generous partners at Caudalie, the NFF reforested more than 250 acres of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, helping restore the damage from recent California wildfires.
